I' m a recently qualified diver and so was keen to dive during our holiday. After meeting Manthos at his dive shack on Tzaneria beach (bus stop 12), I knew I'd come to the right place. I dived 3 times with Manthos, each time a different place and a different experience down to over 20m of crystal clear water teeming... More

We did a great deal of research about dive centers on Skiathos Island, and Manthos & Dolphin Diving are the only real, multi-agency accredited dive school and center on Skiathos. Manthos has been operating for over 25 years, and his knowledge of over 17 dive sites around this tiny 7-mile island reflects that commitment and passion. He assesses every diver's... More

My father in law is always full of praise for this close-knit friendly school and so I took his advise and did a "try dive" this September. Mathos the owner is obviously extremely passionate and is a very friendly guy - at only 55 euros it was an absolute bargain. Three of us were complete beginners and all thoroughly enjoyed... More

Second year with Manthos and Ray. I thank you both for your professionalism and going above and beyond your job to make sure that my daughter and I had the BEST time possible. I've dived in various countries and can honestly say that this diving centre hits the spot! The briefings were clear and concise and you knew exactly what... More

Once again Manthos has made our holiday complete... Manthos adds that edge of adventure that Skiathos would lack if you didn't do a dive... We did a night dive this Holiday and what a fantastic experience.. even saw an octopus hunt!!! .. Manthos supplied the lights and good and well serviced they were.. I cannot recommend Manthos enough if you... More

For 2 weeks every year for the last 5 years, i've dived with Manthos and Ray. After around 40 dives, I've probably now covered all their dive sites (of which there are many), but i'm still not tired of diving there. Manthos is an excellent instructor, and will allow experienced divers to use their own initiative as you would expect.... More

I had two extraordinary diving session during the time spent in Skiathos island. It was a family holiday and I still found a few hours for my hobby. Dolphin Diving Center is the perfect place for having good memories. Manthos told me in a previous email that I'll have a beautiful dive. He had right : there were, not one,... More

Manthos is living his enthusiasm. Safety and chilled atmosphere first. Not the big whales, but wonderful corals and other small, but lovely things!

I was due to visit skiathos on a family holiday and as a scuba diver also wanted to do some diving. I read the reviews on trip advisor for dolphin diving and decided to give it a go. I did not expect to meet such a pleasant and genuinely nice chap as Mathos Fanaras, his knowledge of the area and... More
